From the outside looking unattractive, but the inside is beautiful. Every seat has a good view to the field and the atmosphere is very special, thanks to the cheering of Basel fans. I recommend to buy tickets early in order to get a better seat. Sectors C2-C5 Balcony or G4-G7 (first few rows only) are absolutely fantastic! Pricing is expensive... More

I always walk by this Stadium and finally got inside for the Friendly match between Brazil and Switzerland last year. Even though Brazil lost the match I was very pleased with all the experience. The stadium is super-well-organised and you don't have to wait in long lines to get inside or to find your seat. The structure is really well... More

We purchased tickets online and attended a match vs. FC Thun. We took the tram (free with tickets) from Old Town and arrived to the stadium. It was a Sunday so the mall attached to the stadium was closed, but the team store was open (bought a scarf- might have been the only affordable thing we purchased in Switzerland!) and... More

From the outside it certainly does not look like a football stadium. It quite simply looks like a mess which I could well have passed by if it had not been for the crowds congregating outside. Inside, however, it is a good stadium with good spectator access, decent legroom and good sight lines. The food and drink was pretty average... More

Very nice from outside,modern and totally fits in the city plan. Easily reachable,with public transportation or with a car. Liked the big parking area under the stadium. It is more than a stadium,you can spend some time going around the shops that are in the stadium. At the stadium was great, loud fans and cheering,great atmosphere. You can also buy... More

Even for someone like me (American) who is not a huge fan of Football (AKA: Soccer), it is still a lot of fun to attend a real football match in Europe. The St. Jakob Stadium in Basel is a nice place to enjoy just such a game. The fans in Basel are great, and really show some team spirit before... More
